Quincy, FL - May 6, 2012

A Quincy man was chased down and beaten by a group of men early Saturday morning 5-5-12. Shadrick Lindsey was beaten and left laying in the street, fighting for his life.

"The only thing I want out of this is for the people who are responsible for this, (the) person or people, to be brought to justice. I want some justice," says Willie Thigpen, Lindsey's great uncle.

Justice is what a quiet Quincy neighborhood is calling for. Lindsey was walking along B. W. Roberts Street early Saturday morning 5-5-12 when a group of men dressed in black and wearing orange bandannas chased him. The group of about 6 men beat Lindsey, leaving him on the ground barely conscious. He was rushed to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. It's an attack that's left police without a motive and neighbors wondering why.

"He don't bother no body. He's real sweet. A lot of people get along with him. So for somebody to do that to him I just don't understand it," says Tonyera Collins, a friend of Lindsey.

Lindsey is known throughout the neighborhood for his caring nature and contagious smile.

"He has one of those smiles that when you're down, it would lift you up," says Subrina Thomas, a friend of Lindsey.

Now for the man whose smile lifted up so many, his friends and family are hoping their prayers can lift him up and bring him home.

"Just got to be strong, you know? That's all we can do. That's all I know how to do. Pray. Ask God to bring him back home," says Thigpen.

Lindsey remains in critical condition at TMH. But his family says his health is improving.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Quincy Police Department at 850-627-7111.
